Paradisiacal French Polynesia is best experienced upon its calm turquoise waters, which is why we have selected the luxurious Lagoon 620 Catamaran as our home base for this curated journey. Pampered by our very own Art In Voyage crew, discover intriguing traditions and awe-inspiring scenery revealed by just four out of the one hundred and fifteen islands of French Polynesia.
On this island-hopping adventure, encounter welcoming island communities, dramatic volcanic scenery, and incredible oceanic wildlife along the way. Dive the reef circuit surrounding Raiatea and neighboring Taha’a and come face to face with Polynesia’s remarkable marine life. Indulge in rejuvenating massages, embark on mountain adventures in Huanine, and treat yourself to a collection of sought-after black pearls, hand-crafted rum, or Tahitian vanilla.
Join us in exploring the endlessly alluring French Polynesian islands, the Art In Voyage way.

Art in Voyage knocks it out of the park! What an incredible trip to the French Polynesia. We did 6 nights on a catamaran between islands and lagoons then 2 nights in an Over-water Bungalow in Bora Bora. They planned everything perfectly. We got to experience things that we wouldn’t if we had planned on our own. This is our third trip with them and definitely not our last!
